The 4-H program helps teach young people responsibility, develop good citizenship, improve self-esteem and provide experience and skills that will last a lifetime.

Building on more than 100 years of tradition, the 4-H motto is “to make the best better.” Through hands-on opportunities, youth “learn-by-doing” as they explore robotics, animals, sewing, conservation, leadership, nutrition and community service.
